U.S. Interior Secretary Sally Jewell will announce the program at the Forsythe National Wildlife Refuge in Galloway Township on Thursday.

The announcement comes nearly a year after Sandy devastated communities along the Jersey shore.

Sandy destroyed refuge roadways and dumped boats, fuel oil tanks, chemical drums and other debris across 22 miles of refuge lands. The refuge’s marshes, beaches, and forests protected the refuge’s visitor center and headquarters and surrounding communities from severe flood damage.
